ABSTRACT:  Our country has been under siege for a long time. It has undergone a lot of hardships, aside from having a stagnant economy due to the domination of foreign corporations, the country was struck by a number of natural calamities. These have claimed lives, properties, and most of all deprived the Filipinos from having a livelihood of their own. These did not stop the Filipinos from moving on. Instead, they were motivated to strive harder in order to survive. The time has come for the Filipinos to prove that they themselves could do it on their own. These did not stop the Filipinos from moving on. Instead, they were motivated to strive harder in order to survive. The time has come for the Filipinos to prove that they themselves could do it on their own. This study, entitled, " The Small-Scale Enterprise and the Filipino", who would like to present the Filipinos who have succeeded by engaging in small-scale enterprises. Mrs. Lucia Mesina, an ordinary employee, was able to establish a profitable and successful business through her industry, confidence and having a small capital. Mesina's Manufacturing located at Guiguinto, Bulacan, with fifty (50) workers whose products are knitted shirts, blouses and sweaters. For Mr. Rogelio Epifanio, honor and goodwill are enough capital for his business, RDM Union Quality Bags, located at Mololos, Bulacan, composed of twenty (20) workers producing ladies bags, school bags, utility bags, travelling bags and children's wallets. Mr. Arnel Pap, an entrepreneur was able to develop something out of an ordinary thing that can compete in the world market. He established the ER Shellcraft, located at Marilao, Bulacan, with sixty (60) workers especializing in fashion accessories. Everything that is needed for a country and its people to prosper is found within the Filipino; Industry, perseverance, confidence, awareness of their abilities. These were proven by the three featured entrepreneurs. They who were not discouraged by hardships and tremendous odds against them, such as insufficient capital, stiff competition from other producers both here and abroad and very little support from the government. They serve as living proofs that will encourage thousands of Filipinos who do not believe in prosperity coming from the Filipino, for the Filipino. The researchers would like to recommend the following to the people, the government and to our fellow students: First, that the government give more support to small scale industries through the promulgation of more laws for the protection and assistance in the market, tax incentives, the simplification of the papers, and the expansion of locally produced goods in the world market. Second, for the Filipinos to believe in themselves and in their Filipino brother's and sister's ability to strive for the betterment of the country and its people. Third, that the Filipinos learn to appreciate and support local achievements and that these achievements serve as an inspiration for them to give their share in reaching the prosperity the country has been aiming for. Fourth, that the Filipino people realize and make use of their inherent traits, such as, craftiness, resourcefulness, self-reliance, "laka-loob", industry, "pagpapakumbaba", "pagtuklas" and "saya" Fifth, for the Filipino people not to lose hope and their sense of dignity in times of trouble and to look at the future with fulfillment and satisfaction. Sixth, for us graduates to realize that we too can be entrepreneurs on our own. That we can attain our dreams through our own efforts and hardwork, and at the same time contribute for the development of the country.
